PEER GRIEF SUPPORT
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
What is a Certified Grief Educator???
"A Certified Grief Educator is committed to providing the highest level of grief support through education, experience, and insights into the often unacknowledged rocky terrain of grief.
Certified Grief Educators completed a certificate program designed by world-renowned grief expert, David Kessler. They bring his unique methodology, tools, and decades of experience to help people navigate the challenges of grief."
IN SEPTEMBER 2021 I COMPLETED A TRAINING WITH DAVID KESSLER, GRIEF EXPERT.
BECAUSE I AM NOT A LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. MY SUPPORT IS THAT OF A PEER GRIEVER.
I SEE MYSELF AS A FELLOW GRIEVER WHO HAS SOUGHT OUT AND FOUND MANY RESOURCES THAT MAY BE OF SERVICE TO OTHERS WHO ARE GRIEVING AND SEEKING FOR THEMSELVES.
I AM AVAILABLE TO LISTEN, PROVIDE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES.
I AM CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A STORYTELLING PLATFORM FOR GRIEVERS, "FOR GRIEVING OUT LOUD"© - HELPING THEM TO CREATE AND TELL STORIES OF LOVED ONES AND THEIR GRIEVING EXPERIENCE, IN SMALL GROUPS OR LARGE VENUES. IN TELLING OUR STORIES WE ASSURE THAT WE ARE SEEN AND HEARD AND HELP TO EDUCATE THOSE WHO HAVE NOT YET TRAVELED THIS ROAD.
I INVITE YOU TO REACH OUT TO ME IF YOU FEEL CALLED TO DO SO. I WILL SERVE IN WHATEVER WAYS I AM ABLE.
GRIEF IS NOT SOMETHING TO BE FIXED...MY GOAL IS TO BE OF SERVICE TO OTHERS. I TOO AM TRAVELING THIS PATH FILLED WITH LANDMINES AND PITFALLS. WE CAN HELP EACH OTHER STAND UP WHEN WE FALL AND KNOW THAT WE ARE IN COMMUNITY WITH OTHERS WHO KNOW THE DEPTHS OF LOVE AND LOSS.
